Welcome to the home of Bead Origami!

by Cindy Holsclaw

Bead Origami is the philosophy behind my geometric beadwork. I'm constantly inspired by my background in origami and my experiences as a scientist. My beadwork designs combine many different shapes, sizes, and styles of small beads into larger beaded objects, which are engineered for stability and longevity. I share my designs through teaching beading workshops and writing detailed, highly illustrated beading patterns so that you can also create these fascinating structures.

Find my written beading patterns on the Patterns page and supplies for selected designs on the Kits page. Find out where and when to take a class on the Workshops page. Browse the Gallery for my design portfolio, and finally, check out the blog for all the latest and greatest Bead Origami news!
